lamps offer significant energy savings versus standard
T8 linear fluorescent lamps.

Features
T8 Watt-MiserTM lamps consume up to 10% less energy
compared with today’s standard T8 lamps, while having
15,000 hours life on standard gear and excellent colour Application areas
rendering index of CRI 80+. Lamps are optimised for 30°C T8 Watt-MiserTM lamps are mostly recommended for general
ambient temperature, offering up to 90lm/W luminous indoor applications, such as:
efficacy. The elevated optimum temperature results in
• Retail
additional energy saving versus standard T8 lamps in
• Offices
typical indoor lighting applications.
• Schools
Standard T8 lamps can be easily replaced with the new • Commercial
T8 Watt-MiserTM lamps in the existing lighting applications,
since new electronic control gears are not required. These
new lamps from GE enable even less than 12 months Product range
payback time. GE T8 Watt-MiserTM lamps are available in 3 wattages:
GE is committed to fight against climate change. The 16W, 32W and 51W. The available colour temperatures are:
T8 Watt-MiserTM lamps will contribute to the global effort • 3000K warm white
to reduce CO2 emission. One lamp can save up to 12.0 kg • 4000K cool white

Influence of ambient air temperature on light output
Lamp performance parameters, such as luminous output, lamp voltage and power depend on the mercury vapour pressure in
the discharge tube. The mercury vapour pressure is affected by the thermal conditions determined by factors such as burning
position, air flow, radiating heat sources, etc. T8 Watt-MiserTM lamps are optimised for 30°C ambient air temperature.

Lamp life and lumen maintenance


The quoted lamp life is the “average rated lamp life” which is the average value obtained on a three hour switching
cycle (15 minute OFF period following 2 hours 45 minutes running time) using control gear meeting IEC specification.
This will be the point in time at which 50% of the lamps originally installed are still operating.
Given this definition, in an installation using T8 Watt-Miser™ lamps and glow starters, 50% of the lamps will still be burning
after 15,000 hours; for an installation using suitable pre-heat electronic ballasts the life will increase to 20,000-23,000 hours
depending on the switching cycle. Service life curve is defined as the product of the survival rate and the lumen maintenance.
The rated value is at 80%.

Operation with electronic control gears
Electronic control gears for T8 lamps that comply with the relevant IEC standards can be considered suitable to operate the
T8 Watt-Miser™ lamps. Please note that energy saving compared to the use of standard-wattage T8 lamps can only be
achieved with current-controlled ballasts. Power controlled ballasts designed for standard-wattage T8 lamps will force the
lamp to operate at elevated power but it will produce more light. It has no negative impact on lamp life. Exact energy saving
is application-dependant: may vary by control gear type and luminaire design. List of ballasts tested and approved by GE is
available upon request

Recommendation for measuring T8 Watt-Miser™ lamps


Before measuring the lamps should be seasoned for approximately 100 hours. During testing, the luminous flux of the lamp
should be stabilized by operating it at 25 ± 1°C for 30 minutes. Please be aware that the precise temperature control is
very important, since the lamp lumen output is very sensitive to the temperature variation operating on conventional 50Hz
electromagnetic gear. The measured luminous flux may be considered stable if the relative change in light output is less than
0.5% over a 5 minute period.

Special product features


To create this premium energy efficient T8 product , new base fill gas has been applied. The fill gas has a beneficial influence on
decreasing power and increasing optimum temperature. Lamp warm-up time (i.e. when the lumen output reaches 90% of its
maximum) is on average 2 minutes.
After start-up for a maximum 2 minutes on conventional gear, flickering may be present. On HF electronic ballast moving stripes
can appear on the lamp in room temperatures, these effects completely disappear in stationary state of lamp operation. This
phenomen directly comes from the application of Xenon, thus their presence on lamp after startup is not a malfunction. Similar
products containing Xenon will perform in the same way, this can also have impact on dimming and emergency operation.
